Yes, it’s official that Rihanna has just released her first song in (6) years. The 34-year-old Grammy-winning superstar returns to music in a major way while celebrating the legacy of the late Black Panther star, Chadwick Boseman.
The deeply emotional song titled ‘Lift Me Up’ is the lead single from the new Black Panther: Wakanda Forever soundtrack. It was written by Rihanna, fellow artist Tems, Oscar winner Ludwig Göransson and ‘Black Panther’ director Ryan Coogler as a tribute to Boseman. Tems had this to share about the project:
“After speaking with Ryan and hearing his direction for the film and the song, I wanted to write something that portrays a warm embrace from all the people that I’ve lost in my life. I tried to imagine what it would feel like if I could sing to them now and express how much I miss them. Rihanna has been an inspiration to me so hearing her convey this song is a great honor.”
The Fenty Business Mogul sent fans into a frenzy recently when she shared a snippet of it on social media recently that the new single would be out on Friday. And a fun fact about the project, it was recorded in five countries.
The official soundtrack from “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever – Music From and Inspired By” will be released on November 4. The film officially hits theaters on November 11.
In some other Rihanna news, the countdown is as she is also set to headline the Superbowl Halftime Show in February 2023.
